Book Description

NATHAN MASTERS

Former SAS. Injured in combat. Redeployed with the Australian Secret Intelligence Service.

Nathan is issued with a new mission.

EAGLE SHIELD

Objective: Relocate the Asset to the safe house in Melbourne.
Objective: Protect the computer disk at all costs.

A trained killer must learn to forget everything he has come to know as a well beaten path. He must become both father and protector to an orphaned ten-year-old girl. The Asset. Angel. A girl with a special gift and a destiny, who will change the course of history and human-kind. Nathan must oversee Angel's upbringing. He must see to it that Angel is groomed and prepared for her induction into ASIS as an adult. At the same time, he must maintain the security of the disk. The stolen intelligence leading to MILESTONE.

That was the plan. It went so wrong.

Carl Lakeland lives with his wife in the sleepy town of Snake Valley, 36 kilometres south west of Ballarat in Australia.
Lakeland grew up during the early seventies western suburbs of Sydney. Having enlisted into the military at the age of seventeen, he draws on his experience to create powerful and engaging speculative fiction.
“Sometimes, I can’t let things be,” says Lakeland. “I write stories with passion that others might see as being obsessive. I live and breathe it. I dream it when I sleep. But I never write down my dreams. If I can’t remember those things I’ve dreamt, they’re not important enough.”
Carl Lakeland’s stories revolve around the element of ‘what if?’ He pushes the boundaries of his stories to the edge of the Official Secrets Act, which will have the reader wondering about the aspect of creative licence, or the possibility of fact in his writing. Either way, the reader will be left to make up their own mind. His books are fast paced, edge of your seat thrillers which are distinctively written in a way that will have the reader guessing which way the story is about to head.
“As a writer, unpredictability is the key essence. If I write something that can be foreseen in coming chapters, it’s not good enough. I will scrap it. My goal is to keep the reader wondering, even sometimes to the detriment of my good guys!”

"one of the best thriller novels"

Before I begin the review for Eagle Shield: Milestone Rising by Carl Lakeland, can I just say, wow! Seriously, this is one of the best thriller novels with a spy angle that I have read EVER! I absolutely loved the story line, I loved the characters, I loved the pace, and I loved every single thing about it. Everything was on point, even the cover of the novel reflects upon the story itself. The dialogues revealed so much about the characters and how they said it made all the difference! Such small yet important things were given close attention by the writer, which I think is a great accomplishment. What happens when an ex-soldier is given an assignment to protect a great secret and a 10-year-old child? Nothing goes according to plan, the little girl will charm the soldier and the soldier will lose his heart and soul to the innocent little girl. When Nathan is given the assignment to relocate little Angel to Melbourne, he has no idea that the whole mission will be one with dangerous twists and turns. Angel is not an ordinary 10-year-old; she has special powers that must be protected until she is ready to face the world with her power. Along with her, Nathan has to guard a disk with all his might. He has no idea that having Angel and the disk in the same place will mean so much danger for them. He is also not counting on the fact that little Angel will distract him, steal his heart and make him become a father. He is not ready for this, but he has never run away from responsibility and he will never abandon Angel. So what will he do now? Is he strong enough to protect Angel from the forces that want to abuse her powers? I loved the relationship between Nathan and Angel, it was sweet and adorable. Nathan is a protector and he knows it, but he was very much like a parent toward Angel from the very get go. He was a little hesitant at the beginning, but he quickly learnt to trust his instincts when it came to her. In return, Angel showered her affection on Nathan, which was really very sweet. I simply adored this novel because it was so good that I didn't want it to end.
